The space

Built in 1870, the house had been converted into a corner store until the present architect/owners renovated it as their home. A bit rough around the edges, two cats, old family portraits hang on rough exposed brick, double-height living room with tall windows and full of large plants, 10' ceiling in kitchen, mezzanine office, outdoor deck above kitchen, the guest bedroom has a small private bathroom down the hall.

Guest access

Guests have full access to the 2-story house, and outdoor deck. There is a washer/dryer, and two bikes for getting around.

We live and work at the house with our office on the mezzanine.

Interaction with guests

Phone call away.

Living and working in the house with the office in the mezzanine makes for easy communication.

The neighbourhood

Located on a quiet, tree-lined street, the house is just a block away from some of the best and newest restaurants, bars, music venues, and cafes Washington DC has to offer. Walking distance to Trader Joes and Whole foods as well as the museums and historic monuments downtown.

Getting around

The green line U street metro stop is a five minute walk. The red line Dupont Circle metro stop is about a fifteen minutes walk. Easy access to bus lines and taxis/Uber.

Other things to note

The two beds can be pushed together to make a king sized bed.

Two house cats.

Great, quiet, artistic location - just close enough to the Mall by bike to make it a pleasant ride to see the sites for out-of-states tourists like us. Julian and Lucrecia made it a very enjoyable and mellow stay, and their home filled with art and books gave us something to explore when we were done exploring the city.

So friendly and informative, they made at feel at home many miles from our comfort space in NJ. The variety of things to do just blocks away is endless and an easy enough walk to Great Lawn.

Julian & Lucrecia User ProfileJulian & Lucrecia is a superhost.

My wife, Lucrecia, and I are both architects and partners with our own small design firm. We met in Barcelona and lived there for 10 years before coming to DC. Well-traveled and well-read, we speak both English and Spanish fluently. We also launched the Dupont Underground an important new arts and exhibition space and enjoy meeting people from all walks of life.
